institutionalize respect for failure

we don’t just need best practices. we need to know the blind alleys people went down. if this new math failure site had a button i’d wear it.
Respect for failure
im thinking a gray button with a gray outlined text, kind of hazy, a fuzzy set sort of brand.
for the contribution of being openly wrong
and staying with the debate.
is the acknowledgement of failure the next incipient movement?
mortality as a motto?

if we institutionalize a respect for failure, we’d have to find a way to enshrine wandering without getting in the way.

and let best practices emerge as they may, without consultants and people who read books about the five ways to do this or the seven secrets of  that or some such silliness.
